    A few months back we found out there was an armadillo living in my neighborhood. We'd see it scurry across the roads and shit. One day we went out and got it, took it outback and fed it some shit, we didn't know what armadillos ate, so after some googling we got some leftover fishing worms for it. It came back every now and then and me and my friend that got it named it "ArmadillBRO" because we're all unclever bastards.

    Sad thing is though, we got a bit of snow back during the "snowpocalypse", and believe me here, Georgia NEVER gets snow, at least not where I live. Haven't seen the guy since, so either the snow killed it or he became some redneck's speed-bump.

    Miss you armadillbro.

    Also, that is a really neat OP, kudos for the effort.

    Cichlid have to be some of the easiest fish to breed, if you keep them well fed. I have like 40 in a 200 gallon tank

    Only exotic he has, apart from some fish. he's had it for nearly a year I believe or less, I've forgotten his name but i'll edit it in this post when I remember/ask him again.
    I was amazed how quickly it adapted to him and his family, at first to get it out it's cage they had to actually reach in and grab him, now you can open the cage and he'll slither towards the exit to be picked up and then proceed to wrap himself around you.

    I normally believe fish make boring pets. They aren't very bright, hard to interact with and seem more like decorations than companions.

    Then I found out about lumpsuckers.

    I think you need to see a psychologist, if it's getting worse. They bothered me a tad at first, but I can safely smash them in my hands if need be.

    I hear it's possible for them to bite. Is this true?

    They have mouths, eat, yadayada. So yeah, they can bite, but I've yet to be bitten by one (or their bite is so weak I don't feel shit).

    Those common feeder crickets don't have much of a bite, or much strength period. Scratching an itch with your fingernails does more harm than a feeder cricket bite.

    You have bees? Nice. They aren't considered exotic, but as pets they are pretty damn rare.

    I don't keep them myself, just sort of watch. Me parents do all the work.
    They do consider them pets and not just a resource.


    The honey is nice, though

    I had to help get them out of the tree... Absolutely terrifying.
    The procedure was simple but delicate. I held a box underneath while my mum whacked the branch very hard with a stick so they fell out.

    It's called neurotoxin, bro. Knock 'em out then let them fall. They wake up like nothing.

    Sadly it seems no-one on FacePunch besides us care about animals, for the thread almost had a necro-bump there. If the other sections were updated and the thread was more lively then I would make the fish section much larger with pictures, websites, and other such to your specifications. Since it's your section, after all.

    Not too bad. With college and all I've probably not kept as much upkeep as I should be doing by the books, but it's a healthy system. That one big pink coral in the center there is growing all over the place. Nothing has died recently.

    The OP gave me a good read so I'll share some advice.

    Never buy snails for a fish tank, my friend was like "Oh they'll clean the tank for me". Two weeks later there were like 50 of them in there.

    I think he sold them though, so lodsamonie.

    They're really annoying, like little snots all over the place.



    I murdered them.

    Depends on the snail. There are some large ornamental snails that people buy and breed and they do a good job cleaning. Then you have those little ones that reproduce all the fucking time and are a pain in the ass to get rid of. I buy the big ones and they never get out of hand.

    Yeah, There exotic pet laws are pretty strict.
    Sigh. I hear the reason ferretts are not allowed due to rabies, prone to biting, and something about over population.
    So many lame excuses to keep out cool pets. :T
    I wanted to get a silver domesticated fox from russia, but those aren't allowed:[

    Silver foxes look kick ass, I kinda want an alligator snapping turtle, partly for house defence and partly for the sheer glory and awesomeness of having an alligator snapping turtle.

    Although I don't think you could own one in the UK.

    I used to have a Yemen chameleon which died because his heat lamp broke, and then I got a Mountain Horned Dragon, which died of unknown causes

    I'm staying away from reptiles for now, just trying to bring life back into my marine tank which has 1 black and white clownfish

    My school has an Alligator Snapping Turtle, his name is Tank. I nicknamed him "Boner Turtle," because every time I pick him up he gets a boner (only with me for some odd reason), and let me tell you turtles have the biggest fucking dicks you will ever see. It was as long as him.
